Retreat Registration FAQs


How do I pay for my retreat?

Our reservation system only accepts payment by credit card (see below if a credit card will not work for you). We collect a non-refundable $120 registration fee at the time of registration.  The full amount, less the registration fee, is automatically charged to your credit card 45 days in advance of the retreat.

Can I pay for a retreat by check or Paypal?

Yes you can, but note that we must receive full payment for the retreat to accept these payments. To pay by check or Paypal, select ‘Alternate forms of payment’ during registration; after completing the registration, email [email protected] to work out payment details. Note that your space in the retreat is not confirmed until we receive full payment.


How do I reserve a room for double occupancy?

Rooms with double occupancy are booked and paid for by one person in the group. That person is responsible for all payments. When selecting this room option, you must select 2 guests as occupants. The registration system will prompt you for the name and email of the second person (see screenshot here).

Our registration system automatically collects a non-refundable $120 registration fee for the first person at the time of registration. Our registrar will charge your credit card an additional $120 registration fee for the second person after booking.

I reserved double occupancy but omitted the second person during registration. How can I add that person?

The second person should register for the retreat and choose the ‘alternate payment’ method during checkout, and then email [email protected] to explain the situation, giving the name of the person who made the original reservation. They can choose any available room and we will adjust the invoice amount, place the person in the proper room, and charge the registration fee to the first person’s account.


What are your refund policies?

The registration fee is non-refundable. Refunds for fees beyond the registration fee are considered on a case by case basis. Please contact the registrar, at [email protected]


How do I apply for  a scholarship?

To apply for a scholarship, select the scholarship option on the registration form and follow the instructions on the form. Making your payment, at the time of registration, holds your place in the retreat. However, the registration fee is non-refundable, regardless of the amount of the award. You may choose to defer payment by selecting ‘Alternate forms of payment’ during the registration process. If you defer payment, we will be touch about the amount of the scholarship award and will send you an invoice with the scholarship award included in the price. You will normally have two weeks to make a decision about the award and to complete your payment. Note that your space in the retreat is not guaranteed until we receive payment.

Can I accept the scholarship award at any time up until the start of retreat?

The offer of a scholarship award is usually valid for 2 weeks (so that we can make sure funds are available for as many recipients as possible). Please be in touch with us if you are uncertain about whether to accept your award. Note that space must be available in the retreat for you at the time you accept your award.

If I register and pay the registration fee for a retreat, and also apply for a scholarship, can the registration fee be refunded if I do not receive the scholarship, or the scholarship is not sufficient to  meet my needs?

The registration fee is non-refundable. If you wish to explore scholarship options before making a payment, please complete the registration and select ‘Alternative forms of payment’.
